New Delhi: Former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi on Thursday said that he was not given enough time to defend himself by the BCCI Disciplinary Committee which probed into the charges of alleged financial irregularities committed by him while running the cash-rich Twenty20 event.

"The hearings started on September 26, 2010 and for 20 months, the BCCI put forth their witnesses and statements recorded. My defence began only on March 3, 2013 and abruptly ended on April 22, 2013," he said. (BCCI's report says Lalit Modi rigged IPL bids, wanted rebel league)

"They presented their witnesses for 20 months and I was not allowed to do the same. They could have given me another two weeks time more," he added.
